Description Nigel Horne 2005-04-01 10:51:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
I have an old machine without X, but redhat-config-nfs doesn't run. It gives this gobbledegook message instead which I take to mean in English that it must have X installed to run.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/redhat-config-nfs.py", line 23, in ?
    import mainWindow
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/mainWindow.py", line 21, in ?
    import nfsBackend
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 23, in ?
    import gtk
  File "/usr/src/build/147273-i386/install/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gtk/__init__.py", line 19, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-nfs-1.0.1-3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh to a machine without X
2. try redhat-config-nfs
3.
  

Actual Results:  raceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/redhat-config-nfs.py", line 23, in ?
    import mainWindow
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/mainWindow.py", line 21, in ?
    import nfsBackend
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 23, in ?
    import gtk
  File "/usr/src/build/147273-i386/install/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gtk/__init__.py", line 19, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display


Expected Results:  I should have been able to configure the NFS server.

This is by design.  There is no tui component to redhat-config-nfs.  If you have
the X-libs installed, and ssh to the system w/ X forwarding, you can run the
application on a remote X server.
